Almost certainly... Whatmodel printer is it?

If yo go the Kodak site and then support, with a little intelligent searching youmought to be able to find their downloads section. There likely will drivers etc. for all the OS theybsupport with that printer; and likely the manual too...

When you have downloaded it all, burn to a dvd, perhaps even two. Use one to install etc. then afterwards put them both in safe places (
different places) and both disks suitably labelled too.

✔ Best Answer
I always recommend going to the MFR site and downloading the latest drivers when installing a printer or MFD onto a new machine. This is because the drivers included on a disk with the device are almost always outdated. Most often minor tech or usability issues may have been resolved with the later driver releases.

As for burning the drivers to a CD, this may be handy for the future, but is it really needed when one can always go online and get the latest drivers anyway?
